I read with concerned interest the article by Signal staff writer Stephen K. Peeples entitled "Timing is
To The Editor: Here were are, with a torrent of illegals invading the United States border at a rate of at least 12,000-plus per day. The Bush administration has been dragging its feet on the way about this issue (no big surprise).
To The Editor: A month ago I lost my dad, Edward Garfalo. He was a frequent contributor to these opinion pages. He was a man of little words, so his letters were short and to the point: "One-liners," as he liked to call them.
To The Editor: The cheap shots aimed at Senator John McCain by Joyce Evans and some members of the Democratic Alliance for Action [during the D.A.A.'s April 24 meeting] did not come from the "Hillary for President" crowd. We respect the war hero and a great American. Incidentally, Joyce, nobody ever called you a great American, or I might be deaf. John McCain has more courage, honesty, and integrity than most of the D.A.A. members, ...
To The Editor: Considering the presidential candidates now being offered for the American people to chose from, it now seems like a good time for Pat Paulson to enter the race and Ralph Nader to be his running mate. They have a lot more to offer, and it might be a little more entertaining.
To The Editor: Paul Strickland's commentary ("1,000 pound gorilla is immigration," April 11, 2008) is dead-on correct.
To The Editor: Thank you for the article on Carl Diekman. It's truly a shame that the Department of Veterans Affairs has so little respect for this man and is coming after him over $84.00 a month. The fact that they will not even take the time to explain the charges and offer to work with him is a travesty. The VA has had so much negative publicity over the years, and here they have ...
To The Editor: Ah yes, springtime. A time for hope, happiness, and friendly reunions. But should the citizens of Santa Clarita feel such hope, and happiness, when the jury from the O.J. Simpson trial apparently reunited one last time to determine that Esperanza Castro should not be held liable for her actions? And don't we just love it when a jury is savvy enough to know when detectives are being "sneaky and leading?" Defense attorneys ...
To The Editor: Just a reminder for my conservative brethren that without patriotic American liberals there wouldn't
To The Editor: I graduated from Canyon High School two years ago and am currently attending the University of California at Santa Cruz. I am writing in response to Paul Strickland's commentary of last week ("Some Legislative Relief for Schools," April 21, 2008).
To The Editor: On March 27, The Signal reported that Hart School District officials, after facing considerable opposition from parents and faculty, are still in limbo concerning the implementation of random student drug testing (a practice that is becoming more common in America) in an attempt to deter drug use.
To The Editor: As we become increasingly aware of our interdependence with the natural world, I would like to express my
In what alternative universe does Stephen Winkler reside ("Think before you vote," Letters, April 24)? Hillary Clinton is the Democratic party candidate and John McCain is a liberal Republican?
To The Editor: I've been enjoying The Signal's Web site. Really terrific. Sharon Cotal recently wrote an article about our school ("Christian high schools offer options," April 14, 2008), and it was fun to see it not only on the front page but also up on the Web site.
After 24 years, I am amazed, sad and disgusted about the changes that have been going on with The Signal over the last several months. Where is The Signal, our local paper? Instead of a paper whose articles should be about what's happening in the SCV, I get a mess of here, there and everywhere. I will be changing papers when my subscription expires.
Kevin Buck believes "Jesus would be a liberal Democrat".
With a heavy heart I am compelled to write this letter to the editor on the anniversary date of the Iraqi War.
Yes, many cars in Europe of the same make and model have higher mpg ratings than their U.S. counterparts. The U.S. and Euro testing standards differ, as do the tuning specifications (such as fuel/air and ignition timing, computer mapping).
In my humble opinion, the only way the U.S. Postal Service will survive is to STOP service one day a week. The question we all should be asking is not whether to stop service one day a week, but which day of the week.
I would like to respond to Kevin Buck's column "Jesus Would Be a Liberal Democrat" (March 20, 2013).
Can anyone explain to me why it takes a minimum of five sheriff's deputies to greet Lindsay Lohan at curbside and escort her to the courtroom?
Charlie Vignola takes a page from Stephanie Cutter's playbook in blaming Republicans for the bad health and eventual deaths of his parents.
Editor's note: On March 19, The Signal published a story about a woman whose wallet was stolen by someone hiding beneath the racks of a clothing store while another person distracted the victim. Following is an edited version of readers' postings on the online version of the story.
In response to the column "Jesus would be a liberal Democrat" (March 19), it's always easy to use, or misuse, Jesus to make a political point, although good taste dictates against it.
In Mr. Patton's piece "Red states should be careful what they wish for" (March 22), his conservative critique of liberalism is as fact-free and unsupported as nearly all conservative points seem to be today.
After a great many conversations and debates about gun control, there are still a great many members of Congress bowing to the NRA lobby because they want to protect their political futures more than they want to protect us against gun violence.
While driving in Santa Clarita I have noticed some techniques that appear to be unique to the culture here.
I used to live in Santa Clarita. I moved to the Bay Area about nine years ago but still check in on The Signal occasionally.
Compulsion against peaceful citizens is immoral. Likewise, extracting taxes for activities that benefit some citizens, but not others, is also immoral.
